Cincinnati Bengals oddsmakers’ favorite to win AFC North after Week 15
The Cincinnati Bengals took care of business against the Denver Broncos and next up is a date with the Baltimore Ravens. That game could very well decide who wins the AFC North and as of now, WynnBET thinks the Bengals will be donning the division champs t-shirts and hats by the season’s end… but not by much.
As of this writing, WynnBET gives Cincinnati +175 odds to win the AFC North and the Ravens are right behind with +185 odds. The Browns aren’t too far back either sitting with +275 odds. The Steelers have the worst odds but are still theoretically in it with +800 odds. Don’t be shocked if these odds are different as you’re reading this article because that’s how wild this division has been in 2021.
As mentioned above, the AFC North champion might be determined on Sunday afternoon when the Bengals and Ravens duke it out for the second time this season. Cincinnati took the first matchup with a blowout 41-17 victory and at the time was 5-2 and on top of the NFL world.
Since then, it’s been a rollercoaster for the stripes who proceeded their next two games to the Jets and Browns. They bounced back with wins over the Raiders and Steelers but then lost two games in a row once again, dropping them to 7-6.
So, to sum up, since that explosive victory over Baltimore, the stripes have gone just 3-4 and at times, don’t look anything close to being a playoff contender. That appears to be a theme in the league this year though honestly.
Cincinnati Bengals are the betting favorite to win the AFC North but it’s close.
WynnBET has the Bengals as a slight favorite over the Ravens this week but that’s because they’re the home team. With the 2.5 points WynnBET has Cincinnati favored by, if this game were to be played on a neutral field, Baltimore would actually be favored, for what it’s worth.
We all know these divisional matchups are so tough to predict because of how close this division is in the standings. Everyone still has something to fight for and hopefully, the Bengals do their part and bury the Ravens in order to hold the ultimate tiebreaker over their divisional foe.
